In a statement on Thursday, the club confirmed that Lee’s family will be in attendance for the National League fixture at Huish Park with his daughters, Amelia, Laila, and Charlie-Mae, mascots for the game.

It added: “As ever, we ask supporters in the Thatchers Stand to hold aloft the Lee Collins banner as the players enter the pitch.

“Tributes to Lee will be paid before kick-off, so we ask supporters to be in their seats around 15 minutes before kick-off hope you join us in celebrating his life.”

The game is the closest home fixture to the first anniversary of Lee’s passing on March 31 last year.
